Richard Cock returns to Port Elizabeth to conduct combined choirs, orchestra and soloists at his annual Christmas Concert, on Sunday 25, November 2018, starting at 2-00pm, at the Weiss Memorial Church, Schauderville.
The move from the traditional venue, St Mary’s Cathedral, to the Weiss Memorial Church in Schauderville, was prompted by the overwhelming success of the Teaching and Enrichment Project of the Royal School of Church Music.
The project was sponsored by the National Lotteries Commission, and five Primary schools in Port Elizabeth’s Northern Areas were selected for pupils and teachers alike to receive practical and theory training in choral and instrumental music.
The schools participating in the project are: Alpha, Astra, Bethelsdorp Road, Kroneberg and Soutpan Primary Schools and members of the respective choirs, joined by St Teresa’s Primary School choir, will make up the 300 strong children’s choir singing at the Concert.
The soloists who will be singing are:
- Andiswa Makana – a dramatic soprano originally from P.E. but now living and studying in Germany
- Nicholas Nicolaidis – a tenor from Johannesburg who will soon be translocating to Canada
- Lesego Mkhwanazi – a bass/baritone from Pretoria
A combined choir of singers affiliated to the RSCM will lead the singing and the audience will participate in eight well known carols, such as, Once in Royal David’s City, Joy to the World, O come, all ye Faithful, Hark the Herald Angels and more
There will also be Choir-only items by the RSCM choir and the children’s choir.
Tickets will be sold at the door and are R30.00 for Adults, Pensioners and Teens. R10.00 for under 12’s.
